My reactions (in the order announced in the email)... 'Sounds good but my copy of 'Manhattan in Reverse' is going to a friend after I've read it', 'Who?', 'I really should know who John Landis is, time to hit Wikipedia', 'Go to this signing I will not', 'The signing is in Bristol, I'm in London' and 'I'm there for this one, Hope can damn well sleep in the buggy!'
 
Any of these signings catch your eye?

Going to see Warwick Davies would be pretty epic. I reckon he's got a hell of a story to tell.

I won't be in London for the 5th, but I'd love a signed copy of "Manhattan in Reverse". Luckily my little brother lives in London. I've sent him my Christmas present instructions, unfortunately he's not the most organised person, so if I get it, I'll be very impressed :)

(There's also the strong possibility that I'll have forgotten the request by Christmas, making it doubly surprising)
